Respite Care Atlanta

We Need You

Respite Care Atlanta is an inter-faith respite program designed to support caregivers and their loved ones in a safe, caring and comfortable atmosphere.  A virtually all-volunteer staff is the driving force behind a congregational respite program and they bring energy, enthusiasm and open hearts to promote family well-being for those confronting the dementia journey with a loved one. We seek volunteers of all ages to provide families with an affordable, community-based, social-recreational program for respite care.  Volunteers contribute significantly to the planning and execution of activities designed to engage participants socially, cognitively, physically and spiritually and foster meaningful connections between members of the community.

All volunteers must complete an application, background check, orientation and required training to serve our families.  Bring your ideas and abilities to help us achieve our mission and more!

We welcome all volunteers and invite you to share yourselves with those we serve.  Please bring your valuable skill-sets in these and other areas, too!

Who We Serve

Respite Care Atlanta provides weekday respite for dementia caregivers who often neglect their own needs while in the caregiver role. In addition, supportive guidance and resource information is made available. Program participants are subject to eligibility guidelines involving activities of daily living (transferring, feeding and toileting) and must demonstrate the ability to socialize with others. Currently, we are looking for a small number of participants to initialize our program. If your family or another SPdL church family could use our help, please have them contact Wendy Liverant, director, by telephone (404-591-4365) or click the button below.
